Pittsburg State University Testing Center

 The University Testing Center serves the PSU community by providing a place where people may take exams for purposes other than fulfilling PSU course requirements. These include international standardized tests (ACT, TOEFL, GRE, MCAT, etc.) as well as tests for other universities. The University Testing Center is bound by the policies of the test provider and cannot make exceptions to test provider policies. Please note payments to the University Testing Center are non-refundable.
